Miranda is a smallish terrier cross aged around two years old. We found Miranda in January when we were visiting a private shelter. She was a little skeleton huddled in a pen with her siblings and some other dogs. It is a common story in every shelter that there’s often one weak dog in the pen that nobody lets eat…. Miranda was that dog. Our friend Mihaela was with us and when she said she was considering taking her home, of course we encouraged that (hence why no rescuers husbands like them coming out with us). Miranda was not on the list of dogs at that shelter that belonged to the rescuers we work with so permission had to be asked from an organisation in Germany for us to take over responsibility and they readily agreed that they wanted what was best for her. In Mihaela’s care Miranda started to gain weight and grow in confidence and she is now here in the UK looking for a family to continue with that care and love. Miranda is a submissive little girl who is desperate for love but also a little scared to ask for it for fear of abuse…. a sad thing to witness but what a privilege to be the ones to gain her trust and see that fear subside. She will need the full time companionship of another dog in her forever home and has lived happily with cats. She would be fine with respectful children aged twelve plus.

Miranda fostered Norwich Norfolk.

Adoption Policy

When you adopt a Safe Rescue dog, you MUST use a slip lead. This will keep your dog safe: your new dog will be nervous and will not trust you, and you will not know which situations might upset your dog. If your dog panics, then a slip lead is the only way to prevent your dog from escaping (many dogs can escape from a collar and/or harness). It will take AT LEAST 3-6 months for your dog to settle-in and for you to know your dog fully (longer for nervous dogs). The slip lead must ALWAYS be used during this settling-in period.

Even after your dog is settled, it is safest to use the slip lead in situations where your dog may become scared (e.g. visiting new places, around unfamiliar people, at the vet), and it situations where unexpected triggers might happen (e.g. around bonfire night). Nervous dogs may always need to wear a slip-lead as a back-up safety measure.

The slip lead is a safety device and must NEVER be used as a training tool. Using the lead to apply pressure to the dog’s neck is damaging. If your dog pulls on the lead, then we can advise you on training methods that avoid harm.

Once your dog is settled, you may want to consider using a harness (together with the slip lead) if your dog is comfortable with being handled when it is fitted. Most harnesses are not escape-proof, but harnesses with a strap behind the ribcage (e.g. Ruffwear Webmaster or Perfect Fit Harnesses) are safer.

Retractable / extendable leads must never be used on our dogs.

Adopted dogs must be collected from the rescue and transported straight home in a crate.

Fences and gates must be 5ft min & secure. All dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered).
